Summary: I ordered this phone used from Amazon Warehouse deals it was supposed to be a GSM model unlocked I got my phone today opened the box and it was Verizon. Before I ordered I even called Amazon to be sure it was the GSM version and they assured me it was GSM. So I am returning the phone for a full refund.
Excerpt: i have had this phone for not more than a month now , the phone that i have bought is original made in korea and not in china and since considering samsung is from korea ... i think it is a very good phone .... everything is excellent and in order except for the battery which lasts for a day at the most ....
Pros: excellent phone ( by design ), fast internet, Very fast UI considering the processor, very good camera, gets updates instantly ( when released by google ), text input is easy, very good for everyday usage
Excerpt: it is a good phone its camera is 5 mp but it click images as 8 mp means it lacks somewhat but not that much as we think Really Nice Phone .... nice diaplay ... good performance ..... Happy to have it.
Great value for the money, if you can ignore the battery life.

Summary: I purchased this phone because I wanted to upgrade to 4g LTE without losing my unlimited data plan through Verizon. This phone was one of the least expensive ways that I found to accomplish this. Compared to the other Android phones in it's price range this is actually better across the board except for two areas. The first and most glaring issue with this phone is the battery life. I charged the phone overnight after I got it activated on my account.
Summary: I love my phone, it's very fast and it has a lot of cool features. the only problem is that the battery overheats quite very often and the cable for charging is really really really short so I cant use it while charging
Good overall for someone that doesn't use their phone a lot.

Summary: its light pretty nice phone but not so good in battery life. i just learned you must use the specific charger that comes with the phone no other charger will work because it will eat your battery life.
Summary: I love this phone so much! It's amazing that it's still relevant 2 years later! The only problem with this phone that I have encountered is battery life. I'm not sure what Samsung was thinking with that one, but it was quickly remedied with a Hyperion 3800mAh battery that I bought! Jelly bean is so smooth and fast! Couple that with 4G LTE, and you've got one of the best phones out there!
If you don't know which Android phone to get, GET THIS ONE!

Summary: Bought this phone for a friend. My mom has one and I liked it quite a lot, which is interesting because I'm addicted to my iPhone. Its easy to maneuver and has all the features one could need. The size is great, it does text, email, calendar, phone, plenty of apps, good camera. Its a very good choice. I've since gotten to look at a Nexus 4, the follow on, and its just as awesome but much faster and its camera has more features.
